After a publicly humiliating divorce, best-selling author Emma Volant runs away to hide in the seaside English village of Amberwick, where she doesn’t know another living soul. She wants nothing more than to surrender to her broken heart in private. However, when the locals discover their newest resident is world famous, they gather at the local pub and hatch a plan to draw Emma out of her self-imposed isolation, hoping her celebrity status will elevate the village’s reputation to something more than a holiday hotspot. It doesn’t take long for them to try to rope their favorite bartender, Brogan, into the act. Born and raised in Amberwick, Brogan McKay has built a comfortable life by never overreaching. Part-time jobs and short-term flings have always been good enough for her, but when she meets her beautiful and wounded new neighbor, Brogan realizes Emma has the potential to wreck the carefully controlled expectations she uses to protect her heart. Despite their obvious attraction and growing friendship, both Emma and Brogan are in firm agreement that neither of them is in a position to look for love, but how long can they fight their fears and desires as the events and people around them all conspire to create a full English love story?
From West Country cider brewers to Yorkshire tripe dressers, Tom meets the punters and producers at the heart of our food traditions. He samples the very best of real English food: Bury black pudding, home-cured Wiltshire bacon and the planet's finest cheddar. But Full English is no paean to an imagined land where yokels sip ale together while chomping on pork pies. Tom's quest delves beneath the surface to unearth the real story behind our eating habits, and what the food of today says about us: organic heaven or mass-produced hell? Peppered with mouth-watering recipes and recommendations, Tom's pilgrimage maps out England's defining dishes: Fish & Chips in the North, Balti in the midlands, Snail Porridge at the Fat Duck. But it is the colourful characters we meet along the way who truly bring Full English to life.
A Ramble Through London, Wales, and Yorkshire : Travel, Adventures, and History
Author: Todd Wisti
A full English breakfast is a morning meal served at many British bed & breakfasts. This meal has all the trimmings: coffee, tea, orange juice, fruit, cereal, eggs, sausages, bacon, toast, tomatoes, mushrooms, and a host of other offerings including orange marmalade and brown sauce. A ramble might be a wandering narrative, but it can also be a leisurely excursion, taking in the pleasures of the land and the peoples of the region and enjoying every minute of it (well, almost). In this trek through London, Cardiff, York, and Thirsk, you’ll encounter — along with the author and his brother, Bill — historical tourist sites, the London Underground, and public houses. Nods are given to The Beatles, Monty Python, James Herriot, and also to an impatient train car attendant, short-legged field trippers, Americans attempting to find some real food in London, as well as many other lively characters and situations. Whether you’ve been considering a trip to Britain, you’ve already visited Britain, you live in Britain, or you are content to relax in an armchair reading about Britain, Todd Wisti provides a healthy dosage of wry humor and sometimes misshapen adventures in Full English Breakfast. Foreword by Bill Wisti
The first one-volume book that covers all variations The English Opening (1.c4) is a popular choice at both club and master level, because it is a chess opening that suits all styles. Elite players as diverse as Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana and Vishy Anand include it in their repertoire. As White you can play aggressively or opt for a more strategic approach, depending on what kind of middlegame positions you are looking for. For a club player who wants to reap the benefits of this multipurpose opening, understanding is much more important than deep theoretical knowledge. The Full English Opening teaches the fundamentals and is the first one-volume book that covers all major variations. Carsten Hansen dedicates special attention to the transition into the early middlegame. You will learn how to identify specific plans, determine your strategic goals and find positional and tactical targets. Supported by examples and exercises, you will be able to enjoy the greatest asset of the English Opening: its versatility. It will serve you well in any mood, against any type of opponent, in any tournament situation.
Or, How to Run a Rural Bed and Breakfast and Keep Your Sense of Humor!
Author: Edward Miller
"Edward Miller has been running a successful B&B enterprise in a peaceful part of the Lake District for over 25 years. Here he tells his story of how it came about and how he learned through trial and error to not only make a decent profit out of it, but to enjoy (nearly) every minute of it. The book is full of incidents, some beyond belief, others rib-tickling or just plain bizarre. But it is also full of practical advice and tips, all of them summarised at the end of each chapter.

So says long-time Brexiteer British Parliamentarian, James Gray. Much of thisbook reflects aspects of his twenty-one years in Parliament - as a backbencher,defence and foreign affairs specialist, and fulfilling a variety of front bench jobswhile the Tories were in Opposition (as a Whip, Shadow Defence Minister,Shadow Minister for Rural Affairs, and Shadow Secretary of State for Scotland).In this groundbreaking book, he tries to lay out what he thinks - or perhapshopes - Britain will look like over the generations to come. He touches on almostevery aspect of British life - from defence and foreign affairs, to the countryside,universities and public services. He looks at Parliament, business and the economy,international trade; at overseas aid, security and law and order. Above allelse, Gray lays out his thoughts about the essential ethos of Britain and theBritish; and what we will therefore make of our EU-free future. It's a wide-ranging,readable, light-hearted and intensely personal stimulus to debate over whatthe future holds for Britain.
